I had a wonderful and successful experience with Dr. Hardacker and teammates. I thank them very much.
in Sharpsville IN |
I saw Dr. Hardacker for a review on my cervical spine surgery that was done by another doctor as I had been told I had non union. Dr. Hardacker told me good news about my neck. What I really appreciated is that he took the time to educate me on my spine. Few surgeons spend the time educating their patients on their conditions, and we as informed patients can make better decisions about our health and options when we have the facts. The nice thing is I only had to wait 10 min to be called in

I had my first visit Jan 2016. Visit was for pinched nerve in right leg. (common problem ) had an out patient surgery which resulted with much worse pain. Had a second surgery in march which had two day stay in hospital which resulted with rods and pins no success and still severe pain. After seven months and five useless injections i traveled to Boston Mass and had a 45 minute exam and my problem was diagnosed. I had surgery and spent three days recovering before I came home, Healed......

Does a great job of explaining what medical condition you have and how to treat it. I never feel rushed in his office. He spend a lot of time with his patients.
